It comes as no surprise that L.C. Tiffany of Tiffany Studios earned his start by crafting stained glass church windows. A master of light manipulation, Tiffany fittingly turned to creating lampshades following the invention of that oh-so nifty lightbulb. The first Tiffany lampshade— a delightfully-shaped nautilus shell shade—debuted in 1899. Today, Tiffany Studios pieces are ideal for revisiting the opulence of the Victorian era or pairing with the paired-down works other craft-minded makers like Gustav Stickley.
